The global demand of seed treatment has been primarily driven by the growth of the commercial seeds (conventional and bio-seeds) market. Increasing global farming and reduction in arable land has generated the need for high yield productivity, further boosting the market for seed treatment. Increasing input cost of seeds and technological developments in agriculture are also expected to drive the demand for seed treatment. However, environmental concerns regarding the toxicity of chemicals used in insecticides, fungicides and other chemical treatments are expected to inhibit the market growth.

Insecticides dominated the seed treatment market and accounted for 52.5% of the total market revenue in 2011. Insecticides were followed by fungicides which accounted for 34.9% of the total market in 2011. Nonchemical treatment, which is generally done using biological agents, is expected to be the fastest growing treatment, at an estimated CAGR of 9.9% from 2012 to 2018.

Corn was the most dominant crop for seed treatment, accounting for 34.7% of the global revenues in 2011. Corn was followed by soybean, wheat canola and cotton. Canola is expected to be the fastest growing crop requiring seed treatment, at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2012 to 2018.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for seed treatment at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2012 to 2018. Growing awareness regarding the advantages of treating seeds coupled with government initiatives in countries such as China and India is expected to drive the seed treatment demand in Asia Pacific.
